About the Role
As our Member Services and Events Coordinator, although mainly working from home and based in or around the Glasgow area you will be the main point of contact for our members in Edinburgh and provide excellent service, support and advice at a local level. You will be a conduit for corporate information to the Local Hub Committee and ensure the goals and objectives of the Institute are delivered. The Member Services and Events Coordinator will also organise and publish a programme of local events to include; networking, CPD, new member and upgrade workshops. The role has an administrative focus, with a strong focus on telephone campaigns during our period of retaining our current members *Jan-Feb* therefore a confident communicator able to follow instructions to ensure our members have all the right information is essential.
What we’re looking for…
We’re looking for a highly organised individual who has demonstrable administration experience. With good secondary level education and excellent copywriting skills, you will have experience of organising and reviewing successful events and have a genuine passion for networking and building strong mutually beneficial relationships.
Capable of communicating effectively and confidently at all levels, you will have the ability to provide the highest possible level of customer service and be able to accurately take minutes. Strong IT skills including Microsoft Office and social media are prerequisite, as is the ability to learn new in-house systems quickly.
Although this role is home based, you will need to be willing to travel and work flexible hours to meet the organisations’ needs. A relevant professional qualification would be beneficial; however this is by no means essential.
